Notes

Notes:

- 2 patches were made to compensate for tape flips using the Oade AUD source (SHNID=23848)
on track d1t08 (08:33-09:05) and track d3t03 (06:38-07:23).
- There were SBE's and they were fixed and verified with Trader's Little Helper.
- Files were encoded @ level 6.
- Mark's personal photos from 4/4/85 at the Biltmore Hotel and a CD cover are included with this fileset.
- Mark asked each band member separately to play Crazy Fingers. He really bugged Jerry in the hotel elevator on the way to the show. He told them about being shut out of Richmond '83 (last time played) and wanting them to play it. They all said they'd talk to the other band members. And so it was...

Subject: Nice recording here
Not often I go to local shows for a listen. local being the band playing in my area of the country where I was born and raised.
This morning I came for the She belongs to me breakout. I recall as soon as Jerry started singing unfamiliar lyrics I ran into the arena and grabbed a seat to watch. Also recall the 2nd set as being a lot of fun. dancing and goofing around during Lovelight. Anyone here remember Shwirller. The fun goofy guy who was at every show back then. Well I can still see him mocking Pig Pen during the Lovelight .

Subject: Well Done
A very good recording. Pitched and balanced nicely to my sensitive ears. Above average typical '85- sloppy acid drenched high energy stuff- done very well. Some gems in here. Headphones

Subject: Dude!
What a show.
This could be the greatest version of Black Peter ever to see a Nakamichi microphone.
He's Gone is absolutely in the rock-o-sphere as well.
Wish I'd been there.
Reviewer: pnc - - December 25, 2008
Subject: Very good aud...
...and a rippin' show. If the note about Crazy Fingers is true, that's classic. Most of these auds by Mike and Adam are really good; few are reviewed, but most are very much worth the DL. 8/30/04 is among the best I've heard on the archive...

Thanks! And Happy Holidays...
